Consolidated some information in runeword section. Initial shrine crafting info added, still needs some love.

Sadly once Sigma releases this thread will need quite a bit of updating. Doh!

Nice guide. Maybe mention that the shrine type used for shrine blessing can be different from the one used to make the craft.

Also you say craft cant be done on honorifics but on the recipe you say it can.

Wasnt around for a while so checked your guide once again after break and its very clean and even more newbie friendly.

You must add one thing to shrine crafting section under "2.2.2 - Aquiring Base Items", info about Charsi quest Imbue reward, basically you can take any white sacred item and Imbue it (to get rare base for shrine crafting) with high enough character level (your choice, depending on alvl of highest affix you are aiming for). No matter on what difficulty you will do that, the only thing matter is your clvl. The formula for Imbue from Charsi quest is clvl + 4 = ilvl .

Will this affect the shrinecrafted item's bonus? I never thought of this. Always thought that once you start shrinecrafting, the item automagically becomes ilvl 99.

Yes, ilvl affecting the affixes you can get from the pool. So if you want item to be ilvl99 then your character must be minimum 95 when Imbuing.

Base defence when an Item is made superior with ED.

The way you have written it implies that the base defence can change on superior items. On Vanilla D2 when an item is superior roll with ED the base defence was always max roll +1 defence, then enhanced defence was applied. This makes the base defence of that particular armor irrelevent. However, having a different base item that have higher defence rolls, like Quilted Armor compared to Sacred Armor would make a difference albeit with different Str/Dex(for sorc armors) requirements.

I believe this is the same on Median?

Ignore if I have just mis-read.


It seems 1. Renewal in both 1.4.2 - MID GAME and 1.4.3 - LATE GAME should be adjusted

It could be mentions in shrine crafting part that it's better to watch Total defense then ED affix, because Base defense makes a difference there

Interesting, updated guide. Here are some tests I ran which definitely support max defense with %ED, universally:
